Simple but profound artisan yeasty aroma with some brandy analogues. Beer is of a deeper golden color with plenty of spontaneous carbonation (but not compared to some other tripels); has a solid off-white head that lasts to the end of the glass. Flavor is a refreshing surprise as it totally transcends the basicality of the aroma/appearance. The first sip brings one inside an old brewery, and the second sip elevates on the high carbonation. Flavor elements are very fruity-malt but plenty of hops shine through as do some spices, perhaps cardamom and clove. At even a slightly cooled temperature the alcohol is mostly invisible except on the finish -- which has an extremely raw quality overall, like back to the walls of that old brewery. All in all, a profound experience ... as of the first sip.

Pours a cloudy golden body with an insane head. Aroma is fruity... smelling oranges, and definitely yeasty. Taste is spicy and yeasty. The finish is fairly dry with some alcoholic kick, but doesnt feel like a 9er. However, when this warms, the alcohol is almost the only thing there... Nice complexity here, enjoyable brew.

kepano (267) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 18, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Poured a cloudy golden-straw color with a lasting though thin, fizzy white head. The aroma is of spices, citrus, pinneaple, pepper and yeast among others. The mouthfeel is thick but very tingly from the massive carbonation and tart flavors. As with the nose, the predominant flavors are those of spices and citrus, but the yeast and high alcohol content (9%) are also distinctively present. It leaves a sweet and satisfying aftertaste and a nice warm feeling which Im sure those Canadians appreciate. Very tasty.

Similar to a hefeweizen rather than a tripel I felt. There is a big spicy clove taste as well as loads of citrus and banana. There is a high alcohol taste which kind of separates it from a wheat beer. The aroma is sweet, malty, and alcoholic. Its an intense beer, you get to feel the alcohol. Loads of yeasty flavour. Huge foamy head on a cloudy brown/yellow colour. Nice lacing.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Pours a cloudy orange/gold. The dull color is the reason for the poor grade for appearance. Nice off-white, fizzy head that stays and good lacing. Very complex yeasty aroma. Lots of alcohol in the aroma and flavor (9% ABV) that also create warm burps. The flavor consists of spices and citrus. An ever-so-slight bitterness at the end. Lots of carbonation. Definitely a beer that stands on its own two feet.

bb (8884) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle. 2004 vintage. Light straw-golden color with a white head. Sweet malt aroma with some cansy and spice. Banana and spice flavor with some malt underneath. Touch of fruitiness (peach?). VERY dry finish. Hides alcohol well. Honey tones. Much better when it warms a bit.

OldGrowth (3339) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Bottle, from aceboxer. Good nose, Sweet, citrus, lemon, yeasty, doughy, spice, clove pepper. 1st pour was tad hazy pale golden yellow color, 2cd pour was hazier with some sediment good head that faded quickly. Sweet tart flavors, like aromas with a peppery, banana, has medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, dry tart finish. This is nice, 9% is somewhat masked, though this bottle was given to me about 6 months ago, so maybe it mellowed. Not big on tripels, so I dont know how to place it overall. Damn tasty though.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Had as part of a flight at the Washington House Unibroue beer tasting. This was the first I had in the flight. Poured a cloudy golden in color with a sweet citrus aroma. Sweet tartness in the flavor. Nicely carbonated that left a tingle on the tongue. A very solid tripel. This one probably would blend a little better with age.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours hazy yellow with floaties and a carbonated body. Very large white foaming and bubbly head. Aroma of spice. Warm, spicy flavor with lots of pepper and a slight hint of candy sweetness and earthy notes toward the end. Carbonated body with full mouthfeel. Lingering pepper and belly-warming finish.
